Camp Pendleton was recognised as a military base in Sep 1942. It is also known as Munn Field, after its first Marine Corps base commander. Originally it was a satellite of MCAS El Toro and was little more than a prepared dirt strip with hutted facilities. It wasn't until the end of the 1960s that the first permanent unit was based there. In Sep 1978 a Marine Corps Air Group arrived which required better facilities. It achieved full Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) status on 1 Apr 1985.  With the closure of MCAS El Toro in Jul 1999, the base has expanded again supporting a wide range of Marine Corps units.
